“Montenegro… has met the criteria that are required [by the Alliance] and attended [NATO’s] Warsaw [summit] as an observer and it’s membership accession, I hope will be completed by early October,” Fallon said. 

 

Following Montenegro’s invitation to join the Alliance, the 13th Secretary General of NATO, Jens Stoltenberg, said that its accession would demonstrate that the NATO’s door remains open despite the aggravating tensions and the painful reaction by the Russian side to NATO enlargement.
